I grab the package and rip it open.

To my disappointment,

what came spilling out was not of a precious nature:

candy wrapper, movie ticket stub, kleenex, film carton,

cigarette butts, burned matches, matchbook cover,

a brochure on STUD (delay spray for men)

 

and this:

 

The other day I waited for you

 

 

waited for you

 

 

 

waited for you.

 

 

 

I had candy waiting for you

waited for you.

 

I waited in line 

for a movie

waited for you.

 

I shot

a roll

of film

      36      isolated      moments

waiting for you I waited for you.

 

You never did come

so I wasted my whole day

        and

weighed it for you .........

 

“First Class? .......... $1.24.”

 WAITED FOR YOU
